As basic Chianti's go, this is one of the best. It is also one of the most expensive at around $30. It is drinking quite well right now but needs a bit of air still. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has black cherries, tea leaves, dust and spice. On the palate, this has a lovely texture. Juicy black cherry fruit with underlying bits of damp forest floor. A nice backbone of acidity. Deep and complex, it unwinds in the glass. Nice finish. This works with a wide variety of foods. Still about 3 to 5 years from peak I would think and it will be good for a while after that. 2010 was a glorious year, but this would be good in any vintage.
